Hello Technique Junkies!!!!

What a busy and exciting month May has been for us!  First, we had the awesome new release of stamps for this month on May 1st, and then last week we rolled out a new line of stamps from Technique Junkies Stamps newest illustrator, Rita Barakat

All stamps from the Technique Junkies stores, as well as the new stamps from both releases can be purchased with a full 10% off discount if you use my personal discount code of TJ10Cheri.  Go for a fun filled shopping trip and get yourself some happy mail.  (My discount can also be used on Ken Oliver Colorburst Powders)  

One of the many fab stamps from the new May 2018 release was City Watercolors .  There are so many ways to create with this stamp and my card shows only one.  

Using a white cardstock panel, I stamped the image in a brown dye ink.  I then sponged around it with Distress Oxide Inks which gave the look of a late afternoon sunset.  I used some Chameleon Colortone Pencils to highlight various objects in the scene and then, with a white gel pen, I went around the outside of the buildings and other structures.  This final step gave it a more sketchy look as well as enhancing the stamped image.  This is truly a fun stamp to have in your collection.  

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you found some inspiration.  Here's my discount code one more time and a few reminders.

Advice from an Owl

Hi, it's Beth Norman here with my love for owls.  It's no secret that I love my owls and to showcase this wonderful, wonderful stamp set called You are a Hoot, Set of 7, I created a picture frame for my stamp room by stamping all over my mat with the owls and inserted Advice from an Owl as seen below.

You can receive 10% off of this stamp set, or any other product, simply by using my code TJ10Beth. It's that simple.
